Great to see so many names from years ago back on the blog yesterday. As well as the jetsam and flotsam of life at Celtic, there have been times when the blog has had real value to the few, and occasionally, to the many. Once or twice, we’ve made a real difference to our club.
Our ability to add value correlates directly with the great contributions which appear here; sometimes when people offer remarkable insight, sometimes when many aggregate their thoughts to analyse an issue.
My guess is that there will be moments in the next decade when that insight and aggregation will be needed, so thanks to everyone who keeps the place sane through the flotsam days, before the biggies emerge. Thanks also for yesterday’s enormous support. The untold stories of acts of kindness and generosity from the community over the decade are so numerous they are no longer exceptional. It’s a great place to be a part of.
There are changes ahead. A new blog design is on the way and the Quick News section will retire this summer. Canajunbhoy has exclusively posted the section in the wee small hours for the best part of the decade, so he more than deserves peace to hang up his keyboard. My sincere thanks for all his help.
CQteN was an enormous success and built three school kitchens in Malawi for Mary’s Meals (photos from the last two are on the way). It was also enormous fun. We’re going to do it again, although I’m not sure yet if it has the legs to be an annual event/bi-annual or other. Open to ideas.[calameo code=000390171ae033f39a0c4 lang=en page=120 hidelinks=1 width=100% height=500]
